An oasis of luxury and tranquility, Sense® spa has been designed to convey the sophisticated attitude of New York City's Upper East Side as well as the indelible character of The Carlyle.

The spa has a jewel-like design with sumptuous materials used throughout. Designed by Mark Zeff of Zeff Designs, the spa's unique facility combines the hotel's historic glamour with the most advanced technology found in today's skincare and beauty industries. With a spectacular barrel-vaulted stairwell finished in naturally shimmering platinum mosaic tiles, every element of the design exudes glamour and luxury. Inspired by 1940s Hollywood and The Carlyle's famed Art Deco roots, Zeff utilized a dramatic black and grey color scheme, highlighted with luminous lacquered wall panels, deep charcoal faux leather floors and English chandeliers.
Perfecting the art of escape, the spa exudes subdued elegance, and ensures that each guest's experience is intimate, elegant and sophisticated; a delight to both body and soul. Designed to be more like a residence than a typical spa, sensual images by noted photographer Kenro Izu grace the walls. Selections from his "Still Life" series featuring platinum palladium prints of botanicals and the human form lend the space a serene and exotic atmosphere. In the women's locker room as well as in the Yves Durif salon, Zeff contrasted the dark wood of the treatment rooms with an all white design and white Carrara marble to enhance the glamorous experience. Lush patterned wool carpets and rich lacquered wood paneling and moldings give the spa a chic feel. In the relaxation room guests enjoy lush velvet sofas and ottomans, while damask drapery creates a private atmosphere lit by traditional, polished nickel fixtures imported from England.
